The stadium arches are nearly a quarter mile in length, weighing in at 3,255 tons apiece.
The monumental arches for the Cowboys Stadium span 1225' and are the longest single span structures in the world.
The retractable roof is also the worlds largest, featuring an opening 256' by 410'. When closed, the stadium is the largest interior room in the world.
Each of the two retractable roof sections weighs in at 1.7 million pounds and each is operated by 64 7.5 horsepower electric motors.
Cowboys Stadium features end zone doors that open, to give the feel of an open air facility.
The 5 fully operational doors at each end zone measure 38' X 120' each and are the worlds largest movable glass doors.
The new Cowboys Stadium features the worlds largest HD video screens (X2) at 71 feet tall and 160 feet long. They are the largest indoor video screens in the world at over 11,000 square feet each.
